About BOM designer functionality [AX 2012]

Updated: November 23, 2010

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Use the Designer form to design and work with bill-of-material (BOM) tree structures. The designer graphically displays the BOM structure. You can select different configurations and decide what information you want to display on the lines of the tree.

NoteNote

If you access the designer from the BOM, it does not display route information, because the BOM is not yet linked to a specific, finished item.

The following sections provide descriptions of functionality in the tabs of this form.

The Designer tab contains the following functionality:

  • A functions pane on the left part of the form that enables you to perform tasks such as editing a BOM version and adding BOM items

  • A designer window that displays the BOM's tree structure

  • Current route information for the BOM

  • An item list

The following table shows the actions you can perform for each function in the icon pane.

Display principle

Select the version-display principle that applies to the current BOM structure and the current route.

  • When the principle is set to Active or Selected/Active, the valid BOM or route version for this date is found.

  • The date is also used to find valid BOM lines if Show valid only is selected.

----

Version date

Enter the version date for the BOM and route. The version is used to identify which BOM version to use on a specific date, as determined by the version dates in the BOM-version setup.

Lines

Show valid only

When the check box is selected, only BOM lines that have valid dates are displayed in the tree structure. You can right-click or double-click the line to open the Edit BOM line form and see the validity dates for the BOM line.
